8.10. U Turn the Wheel

The "U Turn the Wheel" program is a one-day in-school road safety program that is delivered to Year 11 students in High School. "U Turn the Wheel" is coordinated by local Rotary Clubs. Expert presenters talk to students about the issues facing young drivers, and discuss strategies to deal with them. The program reinforces the messages that parents are trying to get their young drivers to heed – that the decisions and actions made by drivers on the roads are their responsibility alone, and can often lead to unforeseen and tragic consequences.
